Leicester has had to show its resilience over the last year, but how is the city's economy emerging from the pandemic to show that it remains one of the Midlands' economic powerhouses?
During this City Vision webinar, our expert panel of leading Leicester business figures will examine how the city can reimagine itself as a truly 21st Century city. How will its traditional industries such as textiles change and adapt to the brave new world of retail? How can the city's powerful professional services sector support growth and nurture the next generation of local entrepreneurs? How best can the city's once thriving cultural and hospitality sectors grasp the expected surge in demand once restrictions are lifted? And what lessons have been learned over the last 12 months that will see Leicester emerge from the lockdown and take advantage of the huge economic opportunities that will exist in a post-pandemic world?
Leicester is on the verge of a renaissance in its social, economic and cultural spheres. Our Vision webinar will plot out a route map for the next 12 months that will attempt to lead the city on a path to success.
